Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx walked off an interview with ESPN after the host asked him about his rumoured relationship with actress Katie Holmes.
According to reports, Foxx was speaking with SportsCenter host Michael Smith before the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game in which the actor was playing.
Smith asked Foxx about being prepared for the game before he tried to transition the conversation to the actor’s private relationship with Holmes, 39.
“And I know you’ve prepared and I saw pictures,” Smith asked. “Did you and Katie Holmes play basketball for Valentine’s Day? Like some real ‘Love and Basketball’?”
Foxx did not answer but instead took off his earphones and attempted to take the microphone off before an assistant helped him, as Foxx looked awkwardly into the camera. The actor then walked off camera and back to the basketball court where he began to do exercises.
Foxx and Holmes have kept a low profile of their rumored relationship that reportedly began in 2013. The two were photographed walking together in Los Angeles Wednesday, Valentine’s Day, while carrying a basketball.
